What clients say about Zahra 

“I really do think you have done very very well in helping me through this and you will be one of the few people in life that I have met that have genuinely tried to help me to move forward with a difficult situation."

"Her insistence not to settle the case  and to arrange further reports meant that I got the medical treatment that I needed particularly, which most likely resulted in saving my kidneys from failure in the longer term."
T, a client of Zahra

"With the help of Leigh Day and specifically Zahra Nanji, my family’s future is more secure. The case lasted almost five years but throughout that difficult and uncertain time, Zahra was always there to support us and most importantly believed in us! She was not prepared to be intimidated!"
Martin - a client of Zahra

"This was not a straightforward case. However, Zahra slowly and meticulously gained my confidence and trust. At each stage she reassured me and allayed my anxieties. We received an offer of settlement which exceeded both our expectations."
Mr Barnes - a client of Zahra

"I thank all Leigh Day solicitors, especially Zahra Nanji who has represented me and who has helped me from the beginning to the end of the case.  The compensation of £100,000 will help me to address the many challenges that I face as I return to a relatively normal life"
Mr B - a client of Zahra
